The Bente Kahan Foundation is now a partner in European project Parallel Traces – A new lens on Jewish Heritage.

Parallel Traces is a cross-cutting, collaborative and cross-European project that offers a renewed look at the significance of Jewish heritage. The proposed project aims to rediscover traces of Jewish cultural heritage in urban architecture as an integral part of European history and to raise awareness and respect amongst different cultures through different mechanisms. The project addresses three of the priorities of the Sub-programme: transnational mobility, digitisation and audience development.

The project presents a well-defined consortium that brings together 8 organisations from 5 EU and 2 non EU countries. The consortium, led by The European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ) based in Luxembourg, also includes Culture and Media Agency Europe aisbl (Belgium), Imascono Art S.L. and local partners Patronat Call de Girona (Spain),Tacka Kommukacije (Serbia), Tarbut Foundation (Romania), Israeli House (Georgia) and the Bente Kahan Foundation.
